Karlsruhe Reloaded – City Informations
A foreign visitor of the city of Karlsruhe needs some more city informations in order to develop of an appreciation of Karlsruhe because the capital of Badenia exposes many faces at the same time. The acora Hotel and Living Karlsruhe is located in the western part of the vibrant city, the home of a world-wide renowned university, the Karlsruhe Institut of Technology (KIT) and the dynamically developing trade fair of Karlsruhe.
Located in a quiet street in parallel to the Kaiserallee with less traffic you are in the middle of the city in any way. By feet, with the bicycle or the public tramway all important downtown areas for shopping (Postgaleria), Center of Media Technology (ZKM), congress center at the city garden and public institutions (university, federal court) can be reached within short distances.
In the year of 2015 Karlsruhe celebrated its 300th birthday. The city of Karlsruhe conducted this jubilee birthday with an exciting festival summer. Now the city has resumed normal life and is given back to the inhabitants and visitors.
From the acora Hotel into downtown
The closely located downtown area invites you to an easy walk for shopping or leisurely have a coffee in one of the cafes. Even the world-famous baroque castle of Karlsruhe and the surrounding park and green zones, the exhibition hall for fine art and the Orangerie with varying art exhibitions are located within walking distance from the acora Hotel. The Karlsruhe Tourism GmbH offers many alternatives for the tourist.
For guests with a faible for modern art forms a walk (10 minutes) to the Center of Media Technology (ZKM) and the City Art Gallery should not be missed – leading the way through a restructured quarter exposing fine examples of modern architecture. For a visit of the theatres, the Badischen Staatstheaters at the Ettlinger Tor (Gate) and its world-famous Ballet (chief of staff Birgit Keil) we recommend the public tramway.
